Continental Drift

My dear friend Wegenerś hypothesis that the continents were together and then drifted apart was not believed by many. Alas, the same freshwater fossils were found on two different continents which means that the continents had to drift apart because they were freshwater animals. The same plant fossils were also found on a bunch of different continents (plants can´t swim). Parts of glaciers were found in tropical areas, which is also impossible because its not cold in tropical areas. Another supporting idea would be they found the same rock structures on different continents. (Rocks can´t move on their own.

My statement

I think Continental Drift is in fact fully true because I do believe that the continents use to fit together like a puzzle. And another reason why I believe it is because of all the evidence that the scientist found after Wegener died that is all explained in my work above ^. You should check it out.

Seafloor Spreading

Seafloor Spreading

Dopey, focus here! The seafloor is moving apart because the magma is spurting up and going up into the mid-ocean ridges and creating waves (ridges), then when it gets up there into the ridges it cools. And also some of the magma is spurting up into the sides of the convection currents and creating the seafloor.

My Statement

I do not believe that seafloor spreading is true because if magma was coming up through the seafloor people would not set foot in the ocean because they would be scared. And if magma was coming up through the seafloor the fish species and creatures would be dying that live in the ocean.

Plate Tectonics

Plate Tectonics

Magma moves up through the seafloor and and rises cools then drops and it keeps going in a rotation, then finally it hardens up and turns into rock and makes new rocks that end up in the middle of the seafloor and the old rocks on the outside.
